About the BSD-500 Hyperthermia System
The BSD-500 Hyperthermia System is used to deliver therapeutic heating (hyperthermia) using either non-invasive (external) hyperthermia, which is delivered using antennas placed over the tumor, or interstitial hyperthermia, which is delivered using antennas that are inserted into the tumor, or a combination of both. The BSD-500 has received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) pre-market approval (PMA) for the use of hyperthermia in conjunction with radiation therapy to treat certain tumors.
